Insightful Assessments: Understanding Your Child’s Needs
Introduction: Welcome to my Therapy Assessments for Children and Teens page, where Stephanie prioritizes a comprehensive and insightful approach to understanding the unique needs of young individuals. Stephanie employs various assessments, including the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL), Clinicom, and the Marshack Interaction Method, to provide a thorough understanding of your child’s emotional well-being and support their development.
Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL): The CBCL is a widely recognized tool designed to assess behavioral and emotional problems in children and adolescents. Through parent and/or teacher reports, we gain valuable insights into your child’s social competence, emotional functioning, and potential areas of concern. The CBCL assists us in tailoring interventions to address specific challenges your child may be facing.
Clinicom Assessment: Clinicom is a comprehensive assessment tool that evaluates various domains, including clinical symptoms, psychosocial factors, and the overall functioning of children and teens. By utilizing the Clinicom assessment, we gain a nuanced understanding of your child’s mental health, enabling us to create targeted treatment plans that address their unique strengths and challenges.
Marshack Interaction Method: The Marshack Interaction Method is a specialized assessment tool focusing on the family system and attachment style of the child or teen. By observing and analyzing family interactions, Stephanie gains valuable insights into relational dynamics, communication patterns, and the overall family environment. This assessment aids in tailoring therapy approaches that consider the specific needs and dynamics influencing your child’s well-being.
